Who among us hasn't dreamed of finding buried treasure? Unlike pirate movies where "X marks the spot," in reality, it takes a lot of searching and good equipment to find treasures below ground.
The replies just may make you want to go on a modern-day treasure hunt of your own!
My buddy and I set out to find an old gold mining camp. We followed the maps and were in the right place when we discovered that the town was actually on the other side of a canyon.
We had to beat our way through some 12' brush and then started finding things everywhere. He found a pocketwatch right by the side of the old wagon road. We realized that the entire dump was still there.
Like the place had become forgotten and finally recorded on the wrong side of the creek years before. We actually stopped hunting and told the Forest Service. We met and took the archaeologist up there. He was floored because everything was still in context. Felt pretty good about finding a whole town.
